Our main challenge was creating a site that reflected Sage Hospitality’s forward thinking and modern approach while still effectively educating a wide range of audiences.
We worked closely with the Sage Hospitality team to fully understand their users and walk through the visitor’s journey. We developed a website that leveraged their existing brand assets (also created by AOR) and photography to promote them as a leader in their industry. A critical part of the website execution was establishing a hierarchy for the company as a whole, differentiating Sage Hospitality from Sage Hotels and Sage Restaurant Group.
AOR’s tried and true website process begins with a robust advanced discovery and journey mapping session to establish the strategy and goals of the project. Using the strategy established in the advanced discovery, we built out a recommended site map and content map for the site. Copywriting and wireframing began simultaneously so the client could begin to visualize the location and placement of design assets and functionality throughout the site. Following wireframing, AOR delivered a completely customized, on-brand site design. A fully responsive, custom WordPress theme was created and tested thoroughly prior to launch.
